GSMAR October 2022
It is Fall Y’all !!!
Whose favorite season is Fall? For me it’s a tie between Spring and Fall but I absolutely love the Fall colors, smells and flavors. Seeing the mountains light up with oranges, reds and yellows has always been special. The corn mazes, the hay rides, the evenings around the firepit, the hot cider and so much more, speak to my soul. Traditionally throughout history, Fall was a celebration of the harvest. It was a time to celebrate all the hard work that went into growing from seed to fruition. The Fall festivals were a celebration of all they received from the land, to take them through the harsh Winters. Today, with modern machinery, we don’t celebrate the harvest as much but we still crave the tastes of Fall and the seasonal offerings farmers bring to our tables. Just last night at the grocery store, my wife and I bought some butternut squash so we can make some yummy soup out of it. I don’t know about you but my tastes changed when the cool air invaded right on time this year. I’m now craving soups and stews a whole lot more. Couple that with some warm bread and an apple pie slice and you’ve got one heck of a meal. I Can’t wait!
Submit your favorite Fall recipes to email@example.com so we can publish them in the November Newsletter for everyone to try!
October is already off to a quick start and will continue to be busy throughout the month. As always you can sign up for any event or class on Navica or by contacting a staff member. Once October is over, we will not be having any classes in Nov. or Dec. So, get you CE in while you have a chance now.
New Dues Structure
The Board of Directors has decided to go with committee suggestions to raise some dues and lower other dues. Beginning immediately with our current MLS and eKey billing, MLS Only Participant/Subscribers will pay $540. All Primary and Secondary members MLS dues will remain the same at $415.
In July’s membership billing and for any new Primary or Secondary member just signing up with us, GSMAR membership dues have lowered from $296 down to $250.
We want the fee structure at GSMAR to benefit our members as they continue to deal with the changing environment in the real estate industry. We believe, between the reduced membership dues and all the benefits we still offer, our GSMAR members will continue to grow and support our area.
